Although the web of influences that brand a nation is complex, in one sense it is simple: Nations are branded by people and through people.

From 2011 to 2014, Tom Lincoln and Dr. Tracy Steen explored the manipulation of history by rewriting it. They proposed a new theory--a happy ending--to explain the mysteries surrounding Abraham Lincoln's assassination. Was John Wilkes Booth actually killed in his escape from Ford's Theatre into Virginia? In this retelling, President Lincoln’s son Willie overcame typhoid fever and was spirited away from the White House, Booth was a spy loyal to the Union along with his co-conspirator Lewis Thornton Powell, and President Lincoln faked his assassination and lived in secret. Tom Lincoln and Tracy Steen left clues about President Lincoln's legacy. Can you find the clues?


In this exhibit Tom Lincoln collaborated with Tracy Steen to explore the meaning of monuments. Who among us is worthy of a monument? How can we best memorialize great actions and great people? Should monuments have an expiration date?
